3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Times New Viking - "Ever Falling In Love" (New song from Dancer Equired, their new album and Merge Records debut which is more of a "mid-fi" rather than lo-fi affair with their subtle melodies, that used to hide beneath the distortion and noise now in focus for their most cohesive and accessible album yet.)


2. Thao and Mirah - "How Dare You" (The two unique songwriters combined their different talents together with no pre-conceived notions and have created a suprising, funky, emotional and super-catchy debut, co-produced by tUnE-YaRdS mastermind Merrill Garbus, who also guests and even wrote a song for the album out now on Kill Rock Stars. Thao takes the lead on this upbeat track with Mirah providing the sweet melodies.)

3. Grouplove - "Colours" (Forming after the members met during an art residency on an island in Greece, you would think they would be pretentious, but their fun-loving, upbeat and anthemic indie-pop proves that theory wrong. Their self-titled debut out now on Atlantic is filled with off-kilter, Modest Mouse-like rock and the infectious first single bounces along on a quirky vocal delivery and charged guitars.)
